GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3050

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has a clock frequency of 1607 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 2000 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It features 2432 SPUs, 152 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce RTX 3050, which uses a 8 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1552 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 80 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce RTX 3050 130 Watts
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 180 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (38%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti should be 14% faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 262144 MB/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 229376 MB/sec
Difference: 32768 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will be much (more or less 97%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 3050. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 244264 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 124160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 120104 (97%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is a lot (about 107%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce RTX 3050, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 102848 Mpixels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 49664 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 53184 (107%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
